High Summer, Quamichan Lake

24 x 18 acrylic on canvas

I visited the agricultural property of a fellow painter in the Cowichan Valley. A number of artist friends gathered there for a day of sketching, painting and communing on what turned out to be a very hot summer day. The view looks toward Quamichan Lake, one of two shallow lakes in the area of Lakes Road surrounded by a mix of farmlands and residential acreages.
